    We have a feeling that at least one of our current three bantam chicks will be a roo, so we decided to pick up one more today from the feed store.

    She is black and cream in color. She has a black beak and black legs with orange toes. She's bigger than our other three... they're all a little over 2 weeks old. Any ideas on her breed?

    Our new girl to the left, Vivian in the middle and to the right is Amelia, any ideas what she is?

    First, I am not sure that she is a bantam...she looks awfully big..although she could be one of the larger breeds made bantam.

    She looks a lot like our black australorp baby...check them out and see what you think :)

    Thanks for the reply! I didn't want to say it and sound like a crazy lady, but I've been worried that she's not a bantam too. She just seems so large for being the same age. I asked the feed store guy for reassurance and he acted pretty sure that she was, but who knows. They got in the bantam delivery on the 4th, so the chicks that were still there yesterday were kind of the leftovers. And even though we chose from the bantam bin, there were a bunch of turkey chicks mixed in, along with at least one standard (a barred rock, I believe) who was being picked on in his respective bin. I wouldn't mind, but our coop is small.
